The Academic Mentoring Partnership (AMP)

Picture for Courtney

The Academic Mentoring Partnership (AMP) is a program designed for students in the College of Arts & Sciences who would like additional support in reaching their academic goals. In addition to working one-on-one with a peer mentor, AMP participants will have access to a variety of academic resources and the ability to work directly with staff from the Educational Resource Center and the CAS Advising Office.

Peer Mentors are sophomores, juniors and seniors from a variety of majors in the College of Arts & Sciences. They are highly knowledgeable about the University, trained to help address specific problems or concerns, and eager to help fellow CAS students. Once a student has enrolled in the program, a mentor will contact him/her within the first week of the semester and schedule an initial meeting to tell the student more about the program and discuss how, together, they can help the student meet his/her academic goals for the spring semester. Although it is recommended that participants and mentors meet regularly throughout the semester, the exact nature of the experience will depend upon the individual student’s needs and goals.

For Spring 2014, the program will serve second-semester CAS freshmen only. Space is limited and we will accommodate requests on a first come, first serve basis.
